Robot is an electromechanical device or machine which is controlled by computer or electronic programming to perform tasks automatically. Mobile robots in particular have become very popular and are used for numerous applications such as industries, military, factories and for performing many dangerous and inaccessible tasks. Robots generally vary in size from extremely small to large scales. Robot is a costly device and involves complex components / functionalities there by leading to immense heat dissipation. Thermal management of the robot holds the key which contains motor controllers that generate a tremendous amount of heat as it will affect its agility and mechanical reliability. This paper involves the design & cooling techniques of a quadruped robot.
